Mother Teresa and Your Dream

Today, September 4th, Mother Teresa was declared a saint by the Catholic Church.

Few of us expect to be declared saints (although we all know some folks who believe they are already there) and Mother Teresa was no different. She simply--and that word certainly seems to be inappropriate in this case--did what she saw needed to be done, and in doing it she helped thousands.

If you read some of the reports about her organization, though, you don't get totally glowing descriptions. The comments range from extraordinary and wonderful to frightening and hygiene conditions resembling a concentration camp.

So often, if we have the courage to live our dreams life may not turn out to be blue birds and lemonade. Sometimes it comes out as vultures and battery acid. The key is to keep trying; to keep moving toward what your vision of the dream might be.

Mother Teresa heard the critics but, to her, the cries of the needy--the people whom her dream told her to help--were louder.

Mother Teresa:

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
